Grandma June and Bodie, which is funny because every time she holds him he attacks her...or her blouse...or necklace...she is amused as well - can you tell?
we celebrated my cousin Danny's 30th bday last friday. here are some pics. sadly i can not take credit for them...i put my niece Hope up to taking pictures... This was the first time i met their little Phoenix, who is now 4 mo old - so precious...he was so soft too...i dont know if i have ever felt a baby so soft! anyway - it was so good to see him and his now *complete* family. it was so nice to see all our friends and family too. there were a lot of life-long church friends there that started out going to our birthday parties when we were little and really neat to see them now still gathering at celebrations. i hope to foster friendships like that as well since i believe it was an instrumental piece of my childhood. His invitations were super cute too - it had a picture of a hamburger and "Just the meat, cheese and the bun" around it...danny is like his dad...sensitive taste buds. one time my brother made him eat 1/2 tsp of salsa and he almost puked.
